72 k sevice and MOT... ouch spider
Took the missus Spider in for an early 72k service and MOT the other day. We knew the service would be £500 odd as its the big cam belt, so wanted to get it done sooner rather than later.
But it failed a lot on the MOT too, basically the front and rear suspension bushes were really shot (worse the garage had ever seen), and of course these are complete units.
Also the ex manifold was cracked all the way round, and the rad was leaking..
Anyway we are now £1600 lighter ! gulp.. not what u need b4 xmas i can tell ya.
So be warned if yr buying an alfa get these items checked.
We were done as the car had just "supposedly" been services b4 we brought it from a garage in Southampton. They didn't even notice the wheel bearing had gone !
Good job we got it a bit cheaper..
rant over, roll on the summer ;-)
